Ghost – The Musical comes to Storyhouse from Tuesday 5 March to Saturday 9 March 2019, with matinees on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Tickets are on sale now.
The double Academy Award-winning movie Ghost is a huge success story, both critically and at the box office, where it was the highest grossing film in the year of its release. It starred the late Patrick Swayze alongside Demi Moore, Tony Goldwyn and Whoopi Goldberg, and was directed by Jerry Zucker.
Bruce Joel Rubin’s script won the Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay and Whoopi Goldberg won the Oscar® for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. The film’s most iconic and moving scene was famously performed to The Righteous Brother’s Unchained Melody, which also features in the musical version.
Walking back to their apartment late one night a tragic encounter sees Sam murdered and his beloved girlfriend Molly alone, in despair and utterly lost. But with the help of Oda Mae Brown, a phony storefront psychic, Sam, trapped between this world and the next, tries to communicate with Molly in the hope of saving her from grave danger.
West End musical theatre star Jacqui Dubois (original London cast of Rent and Children of Eden, other credits include The Lion King, Fela and most recently People, Places and Things) returns to play Oda Mae Brown, the part made famous in the film by Whoopi Goldberg.
Sergio Pasquariello (original London cast of Heathers the Musical, other credits include West Side Story, Les Miserables) plays Carl, alongside Jules Brown as Willie, James Earl Adair with his haunting performance as the Hospital Ghost, and Lovonne Richards as the Subway Ghost.
Jochebel Ohene Maccarthy plays Louise, and Sadie-Jean Shirley is Clara. Chanelle Anthony, Josh Andrews, Samantha Noel, Charlotte-Kate Warren, Kage Douglas and Michael Ward complete the cast.
